DJI, the world leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, and SkyPixel, one of the most popular online aerial photography and videography communities worldwide, have announced the 2021 SkyPixel Creative Video Contest. This year’s event sees the addition of a new 15s Video category. The worldwide contest is open to submissions from creators of all types, whether hobbyists or professional videographers. Contest prizes will be provided by companies including FAW-Volkswagen Audi, Canon, and DJI.

The submission period runs from 9 am EST Oct. 27 to 1 am EST Dec. 6, 2021. The contest is open to videos shot on DJI Osmo or Ronin Series products, and features seven categories, including Sports, Travel, Party, Pets and Kids, Creative, Foods, and the new 15s Video. There is no age limit, nor is there a limit on the amount of videos submitted per participant. More detailed rules can be found on the official contest website.

The panel of judges for 2021 is made up of professional film producers, directors, and influencers, including Aaron Liu, Sam Kolder, Devin Graham, and Mike Bishop.

DJI and SkyPixel will be giving out 60 awards, with over $46,000 worth in prizes.
